    Superb

    Friendly and helpful staff and a well presented hotel

    Breakfast was fine but the evening meal was not up to the standard of the rest of the hotel - wouldn't eat there again

    The location of the hotel was perfect for visiting family. Staff answered all questions professionally and politely. Brilliant to have a swimming pool facility and the food was exceptionally good, thank you very much.

    Being kept waiting on reception to check in. Evening staff not being organised and helpful ie. we had to ask about restaurant facility after we had bought our evening drinks,perfect opportunity to make us aware of dining at restaurant missed, we may not have bothered. (we are glad we did because our meals were wonderful). No butter was offered or brought to the table with pate starter, it was a good ten minutes before someone was about to ask, without us having to get up from our table and wander round looking for someone.

    Swimming pool and steam room

    Our double room was very small and overlooked the staff smoking area. The person who booked us in was not very welcoming, hardly said a word. The room we had should have been half the amount we paid. Window frame was black in parts caused by excessive condensation.

    We arrived late and checked out the following day. The room was very good but the most impressive thing was the attitude and help we received from Reception.

    Finding somewhere to park was difficult as they had Christmas parties but there was room.

    Superb

    Upgraded to Thomas Hardy Suite, very relaxing, very comfortable bed. Staff were informative and helpful. Wife had pork tenderloin for dinner which was excellent. Excellent breakfast.

    The sofa in the T.H. Suite was extremely uncomfortable. I had rump steak for dinner which wasn't as good as I expected, edible but not tender. Unfortunately the swimming pool was out of action as the pump had broken. We were advised of this beforehand, though.

    the location

    Kerry, on reception, gave me the impression on arrival, that she fellt interuppted and was patronising and rude. In the morning she was not better. The bathroom was not clean at all , dirt under the sink and the floor dirty. Towerrail did not work. Food was a disgrace, I ordered Linguinie with Crab/lemon sauce and got crab tasting lemon soup with a few linguinie(the were drowned!!!!) I did have to ask for a spoon to eat my meal. Breakfast was even worst, I did have to take place in an empty room, except the tables very crowded with dirty dishes, which were still there when I finished. The coffe tasted burnt and I did have to ask to get some toast with my poached eggs. Again the waiterss gave the impression I ask for too much. Overall that's the worst place I stayed in my 15 years traveling around the UK.

    All the staff were friendly and helpful and could not too much for you.

    The beds were not very comfortable nor were the pillows. There was a crack in the sink in the bathroom which leaked needs a little attention. Otherwise all was well

    Fabulous

    staff friendly , breakfast fabulous less than ten minutes walk to town. very clean . and surprisingly quiet.

    the bar was expensive and the selection of beer limited and not very well kept in my opinion there are some fabulous beers to be had in town at proper prices

    Fabulous

    The super friendly staff who were very attentive to elderly family members.

    I didn't like the hotel bar being open to non-residents.

    We like the The Royal Chase because it is easy to visit friends also seeing the many villages and the wonderful countryside. We have visited this hotel many times over the last thirty years, and we still like this Best Western hotel.

    Exceptional

    The staff were outstandingly kind, courteous and friendly. We had a few requests, especially interesting dietary ones. All were dealt with in a way that made us feel that absolutely anything could be asked and whatever could be sorted out for us, would be. We had the best stay ever, in a hotel. We had been on a natural construction course and very tired but always felt refreshed; this was not just that the pool facilities were so helpful but that we could really relax knowing that the staff were so supportive. Thank you.

    Luxury pillows that were too big were kindly replaced the next day by softer and smaller ones. Working out how the room lights worked took a while! The main ones and the bedside ones were linked but that wasn't obvious on entering the room.
